Pros:

Inexpensive drive to play BD movies, but you need the correct hardware and software. Working fine in Windows XP sp3 and Power DVD with updates and AnyDVD. Although my hardware is totally HDCP compliant, with HDMI to 40 inch Samsung LCD TV, it initially refused to play. Had to get AnyDVD software, which bypasses HDCP. Now it works great! running on a lowly Athlon X2 OC to 2.5 GHz, 4GB RAM, AMD 780G motherboard graphics OC to 700MHz (all from Newegg).
You can install UDF 2.5 drivers (Google for it) to enable Win XP to read folder/file names on the BD disc. (Vista does not need this.) Otherwise, Win XP cannot read BD disc, but can still play movies with the correct software. Wanted to set the record straight after some bad reviews. This drive works well, and it is possible to play BD in Win XP.

Cons:

As many have mentioned, it takes a bit long to initialize a disc. Blue LED light on front panel is too bright and is distracting.

Other Thoughts:

BD standards and copy protections constantly changing, which can be frustrating to get things to work.
